I recall my father’s old bombing maps from WWII, his B-24 pummelled Calais to dust prior to D-Day.

A major operation is underway in Paris to clear more than 3,000 migrants from a temporary camp that swelled in size after the Calais Jungle was demolished.
Refugees had set up a sprawling tent encampment near the Canal Saint-Martin under an overhead metro bridge in the French capital’s Stalingrad district.
But this morning officials started a mass evacuation, gathering several hundred male migrants shortly before 6am behind a police line in a part of the camp housing Afghans.
